This course reviews the recent history of and emerging trends in attached and detached accessory structures, such as accessory dwelling units (second unit dwellings) (ADUs), junior accessory dwelling units (JADUs), garage conversions, granny flats, and much more. Conventional construction requirements and prescriptive structural and non-structural requirements for ADUs are discussed, including references to the 2019 California Residential Code. Building officials, building inspectors, permit technicians, and plans examiners are encouraged to attend to become familiar with the current requirements of California law related to ADUs to understand local jurisdiction authority to regulate these structures and how ADUs are distinguishable from other types of new alternative housing styles. This course provides an overview of ADU framework of today and tomorrow that continues to evolve, including resources and checklist examples created by building departments throughout California.
